After not paying monthly rent of Rs 35 for decades, Congress faces eviction from its Allahabad office

The Congress party faces eviction from its Allahabad office after it continually failed to pay its monthly rent amounting to just Rs 35, as a result of which, the total unpaid rent has accumulated to more than Rs 50,000, Hindustan Times has reported.

As reported, the Congress party has occupied the 34 Jawahar Square office in the Chowk locality for decades but for some reason decided not to pay the rent. As a result the building’s owner – Raj Kumar Saraswat has served them multiple notices for eviction, including one sent earlier this year. Now Saraswat has given the party time to pay the rent till July end, failing which they have to evict the premises.

The Allahabad office is said to have a special significance for the Congress party as iconic party leaders like PD Tandon, Kamla Nehru and Indira Gandhi have held several meetings  there.

Now in order to prevent their eviction, the Congress workers have written to Congress President Rahul Gandhi and Uttar Pradesh’s party chief Raj Babbar explaining to them about the office’s “glorious heritage”.

According to Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee (UPCC) spokesperson – Kishore Varshney, they are trying to collect the amount by seeking donations from about 250 office bearers and activists in the city.

According to a Times of India report, the Congress workers have now started to collect funds to pay off their outstanding rent and they are also hoping for assistance from the Congress high command.

The General Secretary of UPCC – Mukund Tiwari has claimed that they failed to pay the rent owing to a dispute with the landlord over the rent amount.
